Global Space Economic Workshop «Space CyberSecurity for Smart Cities»

The Aerospace Technological Cluster (DTA), together with the Italian Space Agency (ASI) and the European Space Agency (ESA) are delighted to invite you to the Global Space Economic Workshop “Space Cybersecurity for Smart Cities” to be held on May 29th at the Rosa Marina Resort, Ostuni, Brindisi, Apulia, Italy.

The Workshop will bring together leaders of major space and non-space European stakeholders, both from institutions and commercial sectors, in order to interactively discuss about potential cooperative space cyber-security initiatives for Smart Cities and Urban Mobility.

Several panels will be organised with the participation of executives of major European space and non-space industries, academia, national authorities such as the Italian Ministry of Defence, the Italian Council of Ministers, the Italian Space Agency (ASI) and the European Space Agency (ESA), and a number of European institutions to discuss new cross-cultural partnerships and promote disruptive innovation to address the challenges faced by the future mobility systems.

Focus Groups The goal of the afternoon session is to get concrete suggestions on capacity building in the fields of:

  • Mobility for Smart Cities
  • UaV for Smart Cities
  • Testbed for Smart Cities

Participants will be invited to fill the survey and focus on the following questions: – What are the business opportunities (customer, operators, vertical markets) – What are the challenges, current weaknesses, and external threats? – What is required in terms of e.g. capabilities, ecosystems, and links to research, data and mobility? – How ESA, National Space Agencies, GSA and other European institutions can help industries to face the challenges and seize the opportunities?

By being a technical workshop with working thematic sessions in the afternoon, a limited number of 180 participants will be accepted for registration.
